No rush here although they are popular. The prices are very very decent for what you get. We took a starter to share and they were so kind to already split it' otherwise they guy will eat way more'. Very friendly and nice. Wine glass was filled generously. Waitress served with a big smile. we would come back here for... More

Our family of four was seated by a rushed waiter who literally slammed the menus on the table. The terrace was full but the indoor restaurant was almost empty, so I am not sure what the Rush was all about. The menus were in Italian only and I went to ask for an English menu. Someone looking like the owner... More

Dear Mr. Sura54, thank you for stopping by. As I recall, you didn't even give me the time to come to the table to translate because you took a look at the menu, got up and left. And that did not take 30 minutes. This is so readers get the two sides of the story. Claudio Brugalossi, chef and proprietor More

Cibo ottimo, servizio ottimo, personale cortese e molto disponibile. Vino super. Torneremo volentieri. Terrific food, excellent service, the staff is very nice and accommodating. The wine was way over the top. We will gladly come again

We have been touring most of Umbria and Perugia was our last stop. Needless to say we expected this restaurant to be at least as good as the rest we have been to in Montefalco, Assisi, Spoletto... Not only the food was average but the service... my God forget it. These guys are overpriced, mediocre and so arrogant....

I came back for the second time for the truffle ravioli covered in freshly grated truffle. The pasta is cooked perfectly, the truffle so lovely and crunchy -- a wonderful combination of textures. Great service. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco -- and left with a chocolate liqueur.

We visited La Taverna twice as the food was so good. You receive a complimentary glass of Prosecco when you sit down and a shot of chocolate liqueur, made at the restaurant, at the end. Service was relaxed but efficient and you didn't feel rushed through your meal. The wines were of excellent quality. The only downside is that they... More

We had three meals at La Taverna during our visit to Perugia and each one of them was excellent, but what made the experience special were our conversations with Claudio Brugalossi, the owner. From Palm Springs to Perugia, Claudio has done his homework and it shows in the professional manner he runs his business. It is worth going to his... More

First of all, I hold all restaurants in Italy to a ridiculously high standard. I think meals in Italy should be really great, not just "good". La Taverna was really, really good. In Perugia it seems they use black truffles like the rest of the world uses salt and pepper, so I had black truffle pasta in 3 different restaurants... More
